Comment: Wonder if health care workers will give pause (Score 2) 421

We now have two cases of Ebola being contracted by health care workers in developed nations (Spain, USA), plus the many workers who have contracted it while working with patients in the affected African nations. One wonders if the pool of health care workers willing to work with these patients will start to dwindle and whether the CDC call for calm is more direct at those workers than the general public.

Comment: Government breeds panic by saying not to panic (Score 1) 258

Our government thinks we're a bunch of impulsive automatons that need to be instructed when and how we need to worry. They try to control panic by metering out information, first telling citizens "nobody on the plane is at risk" and "the chance of infection spread is near zero" and then slowly releasing information to the contrary, like how there are now home-quarantined individuals and 80 more under observation. FYI government officials: Your strategy has the opposite effect because it undermines our confidence in your information and leaves us to our own devices and imagination about how to protect ourselves and our family.

The article lists all the states that ban or limit Tesla's no-delaer business model and it includes Texas and Arizona, two of the four finalists for Tesla's new battery Gigafactory. Did those states think they had a chance when they support that crooked business cronyism?
